Help me! Help me!
I need to replace the front wheel bearings on the kids year 2000 trx300fw. It's a 4 wheel drive model. I bought OEM wheel bearings but believe that they are for a 2 wheel drive model. I bought 4 (sealed) wheel bearings and 2 seals. The schematic the parts guy was looking at showed an inner and outer wheel bearing on each side. I believe this is for the 2 wheel drive model not 4 wheel. Can anyone help with this?

If it's 2wd, you will have two bearings in the front hubs on each side. The earlier years use two different size bearings on each side. The later years, can't remember when they changed, used the same size bearings on each side. All 4 wheel bearings were the same. If you have a 4wd, you will have one wide bearing in each knuckle. It's one single outer race containing to separate bearings, inside.

ADDED: I changed some of the info in this post because after rereading, I had made a mistake and typed the wrong info. I corrected it.

just to clear some stuff up..when a parts man looks these up..on some micro fich..it shows two bearings..but..in fact..it's called a double row bearing..it's two bearings..just made to look like one bearing. in other words..when that parts guy orders your bearings..it may look like your getting two bearings..but in some cases..it's really one bearing all together as two..this is known as a double row bearing.
